The Quirk Life is one year old. Wow!
I remember when I started thinking about doing this. I needed my own platform. I’d written for businesses and magazines but the process was starting to exhaust me. I always had so much to share but was boxed into a certain writing style or topic when writing for other people. I’d had enough.
But like I’ve mentioned before, I doubted myself. I used to wear procrastination like a cloak and didn’t want to kick off a blog without being ready to put in the work to keep the thing going. I kept thinking, researching and reasoning with myself until the time was right. I launched my online corner of the world and have been so blessed by it!
Running a blog is serious business if you’re passionate about what you’re doing. It’s 3:30 AM as I write this, but the sacrifices are so worth it. If you’ve ever thought about blogging you should get your hands on my FREE download here.
